Wedding Venue of the Year in the South West Tourism Awards 2020/2021
Treseren translates from the Cornish/Gaelic as ‘homestead under the stars’.
Their secluded spot, encircled by mature trees in the midst of Trewithen countryside, is located in the Parish of St Newlyn East. Treseren is less than two miles from the A30; the main route in to Cornwall and just minutes from the spectacular North Cornish Coast and beaches.
Small, beautiful and stylish, Treseren is a gorgeous place to relax and enjoy an intimate, country house wedding or an elopement just for two, in a private setting. Perfect for hazy summer days and cosy winter gatherings, the best of Cornwall’s coast and country combine at this elegant Georgian bolt hole.
At the heart of Treseren is Shepherds House, a Georgian beauty with Austen-esque proportions. The former residence of a Mine Captain and inspiration for Poldark, the house has plenty of history and architectural features. Its stripped back interior, with a palette of greys and whites, original art and vintage pieces has been featured on the pages of interior magazines and blogs, and in fashion shoots as a location.
Adjoining Shepherds House, Skye Cottage is a light, cosy space with stunning countryside views. Outside, there are two acres of grounds to explore, featuring south facing terraces for drinks and relaxation, secret garden pathways, outdoor table tennis, an organic play area for children and fire pits for toasting marshmallows.
Licensed for Civil ceremonies for up to 20 people, and sleeping up to 12 people in five spacious bedrooms, Treseren is a beautiful destination for small weddings with style. Exclusively yours, they offer wedding weekends with a home-from-home atmosphere. Set the scene from the moment you arrive with a wonderful Gathering Feast, scrumptious breakfasts and plenty of spaces for relaxation and play as you celebrate in style with your favourite people.
In conjunction with our local Registration Office, we have developed unique flowing ceremonies commencing in a location of your choice in our gardens, perhaps under a beautiful floral arch or on our terrace and moving in to the licensed wedding room through the French Doors to the garden for the legal, declaratory words and signing of the Register.
22 feels 'just right' here for an indoor ceremony and for seating at our long table for a wonderful meal after the ceremony. We can sometimes stretch numbers a little, for example if there are young children who may eat a light supper ahead of the main party or at a separate table and then go off to play, supervised by one of the brilliant wedding childcare providers we recommend.
Yes! We love children and there are plenty of opportunities for play at Treseren including on our newly installed organic outdoor play area with rope bridge and climbing tower. There are also tree swings and a selection of toys indoors. We can provide one high chair and one travel cot for younger babies and toddlers.
Yes, we welcome up to two well behaved dogs. We just ask that you bring their beds and that they are not allowed in to the kitchen where food is being prepared.
We sleep up to 12 of your guests bed and breakfast, with the option of an extra bed in one of our spacious bedroom for a child sharing with parents. For additional day guests, we recommend local accommodation including a neighbouring self catering property and some great hotels and B&Bs within a ten minute taxi drive.
